The Phase One XF 100MP is a medium format camera with extremely high sensor resolution. It is a modular concept comprised of the Phase One XF camera body, which was introduced in the summer of 2015, and the brand-new IQ3 100MP digital back. The body has a 90-degree prism viewfinder and includes a Schneider-Kreuznach 80mm LS f/2.8 lens. As expected, this does not come cheap: the total price for this kit is $48,990 USD, as of this writing, and is the most expensive camera system we’ve ever tested.

Since this is my first foray into camera reviews, I’ll start with a little background info. I am an automotive photographer on staff at two of Shutterbug’s sister publications, Motor Trend and Automobile. Prior to Motor Trend I managed Silvio’s Photoworks in SoCal, and before that I was a manager at the equipment and studio checkout at Brooks Institute of Photography, where I got my BFA. I have used everything from 4x5s to my iPhone, old or new, film or digital. And ever since my dad first handed me his Pentax K1000 in fifth grade, my lens has been aimed at cars.

Signs are equal parts art and science because they must deliver information to potential customers at a single glance. Signs can be found everywhere—in every city and town around the world—and each one must be designed to be as eye catching and memorable as possible while still maintaining a certain level of cultural identity.

He was a photographic pioneer who helped to revolutionize the advertising business—ushering in a more modern look—but after the 1960s he simply seemed to vanish.

This item is a real blast from the past, one that goes all the way back to the early days of photography. Just because this kit is retro chic doesn’t mean it isn’t fun (and very educational) for all ages. The Viddy from Photojojo is a fully functional pinhole camera made from durable (screen printed to make it look like a real camera) cardboard that you build yourself.
